Some movie fans might remember that Hilary Swank, who won an Oscar for "Boys Don't Cry," forgot to thank her then-husband Chad Lowe during her acceptance speech.

As Alan Sepinwall pointed out, via The Atlantic Wire, Dunham's "thank you" to Lowe has been a while in the making. The two discussed the possibility over Twitter back in August.
